Hacksaw Ridge Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over the past couple of weeks. Check out these new titles: Hacksaw Ridge - Mel Gibson's big, slick, WW2 combat film tells the truly inspiring story of combat medic Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor and the only one to be awarded the honor during the war; Mildred Pierce: Criterion Collection - one of the most shattering mainstream dramas produced while the Hays Code was in effect, Michael Curtiz' film remains one of his most enduring and effective; and The Boy Friend - directed by Ken Russell in 1971, this take on Busby Berkeley style musical excess is an interesting film and foreshadows the visual excess that Russell will use in his movie Tommy.

Arrival Some great DVD and Blu-ray reviews have been added to the the DVD Talk Review Database recently including: Arrival - Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner have a limited time to figure out how to communicate with alien creatures whose intentions are a complete unknown… a rare sci-fi thriller that succeeds on a personal and emotional level; One Million Years B.C. - boasting some of the most iconic animation in Ray Harryhausen's storied career, its visual spectacle is only heightened by this exceptional 4K remaster; and The Sicilian Clan - Alain Delon, Jean Gabin and Lino Ventura run amuck in this classy International Euro-gangster epic… exciting escapes, sexy intrigues and top-notch police action make this a highly entertaining thriller.

Buster Keaton: Steamboat Bill, Jr. / College There are some new titles coming out that might make it worth a trip to the video store. Check out these recent releases: Buster Keaton: Steamboat Bill, Jr. / College - bursting at the seams with slapstick, stunts, and star power, these Buster Keaton films are about as entertaining as it gets; The Yakuza - an East-meets-West film featuring great performances, a terrific atmosphere, and no shortage of twists and turns along the way… this engaging drama should easily impress first-time viewers; and Wild Beasts - an animals-run-amok cautionary tale where escaped zoo animals whacked out on PCP wreak havoc throughout a city.

Something Wild Check out the latest reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: Something Wild - an undiscovered gem bursting with relevant sociopolitical commentary and incredibly powerful thanks to Carroll Baker's stunning lead performance; xXx (15th Anniversary Edition) - smart and subtle it is not, but this Vin Diesel-led flick holds up surprisingly well as an over-the-top action film fifteen years after its initial theatrical release; and When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth - this movie is a pretty entertaining voyage into the distant past from Hammer Films… the picture is nicely directed, features some great vintage effects work and it's got a decent cast working in its favor.

Dirty Dancing Another banner week for home video with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as: Dirty Dancing - the original Patrick Swayze starring flick is a classic and still makes hearts melt around the world day in, and day out… with this release you get an explosive amount of extras too, that are sure to keep you busy for hours on end; Buster Keaton: The General / Three Ages - with new 2K restorations, both films look and sound better than ever... add in a new commentary on the first feature as well as a host of older extras and you have a great release; and Dr. Orloff's Monster - Jess Franco's 1964 picture is a lot of fun. The movie has got plenty of atmosphere and some great visuals.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back - unfortunately, Tom Cruise seems to be going through the motions in this film and it feels like a sequel that was made more out of obligation than any palpable passion for the source; Takashi Miike's Black Society Trilogy - Arrow's Blu-ray release is a really nice upgrade over past DVD editions that these films have received in North America… the video transfers are quite good and the audio is as well, while the inclusion of interesting commentary tracks for each film and interviews with both the director and Show Aikawa are also well worth checking out; and Battleground - director William A. Wellman an Oscar-winning WWII film bucks convention and cliché, while offering a portrait of American soldiers during the Battle of the Bulge that is empathetic and believably lived-in. It's terrific. Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.
